You are having problems sharing your DVD-ROM drive. You work at a small office and have Windows XP Pro computers. Whenever one of your co-workers try to access the share, they receive an "access denied" message. You verify the DVD-ROM is shared, and the appropriate permissions are granted. What should you do to enable your DVD-ROM drive to be shared by your co-workers?
You should configure your computer's local security policy. Security Options contains several policy settings for configuring the local computer, including "Restrict CD-ROM access to locally logged-on user only". When this setting is enabled, only local users can access CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives on the computer. You should disable the setting.
